BIRCH WEDDING CEREMONY ARCH

Our 6’6 birch arch is perfect for rustic style weddings. The birch structure can be hired ‘naked’ or dressed with flowers. We think it looks stunning with white material draped over the birch and a floral touch to the corners. Go all out and use our birch stumps and candles around the base for a dreamy candle lit ceremony.

ROCK MY WEDDING BOOK – YOUR DAY YOUR WAY CHARLOTTE O’SHEA

Rock My Wedding Book You Day your Way Charlotte O'Shea

PERSONAL ACHIEVEMENT

Sometimes in life you meet someone who inspires you and whom you love working with. I met with Charlotte O’Shea quite by chance and have enjoyed working with her ever since those early days. Never did I expect that I would travel the country with the Rock My Wedding team and create the florals for their stunning book. This past year has been a milestone in our floral journey and I feel so honoured to have my work featured in a book. When Charlotte first approached us at the concept stage we just knew we had to be involved and  put our heart and soul into this project.

As Charlotte so beautifully put it “Karen Morgan from Passion for Flowers followed us halfway around the country with her magnificent blooms and ability to whip up a floral storm in an unprecedented short amount of time. I swear she is actually ‘Mary Poppins’ in disguise. Her van plays host to a seemingly limitless supply of trinkets and decorative pieces from her daughter Gemma’s wedding decor store – The Wedding of My Dreams”

WHO SHOULD BUY THE BOOK

The book is an inspiring read, a great gift for newly engaged couples or for anyone wanting to add some last minute details to their wedding day. No wedding should be planned without it!

HAMPTON MANOR NEW OUTDOOR SEATING AREA – STYLED BY PASSION FOR FLOWERS

Hampton Manor outdoor seating area styled with flowers and sparklers by Hampton Manor

As we regularly work at Hampton Manor we love it when new changes are made to venues. Hampton Manor have recently enhanced the outdoor area next to Elizabeth’s Court. There is a new seating area for guests to relax which would be lovely on a summers evening.

Have a look at the new seating area we recently styled with copper vases, pretty blooms lanterns, candles and sparklers. Doesn’t it look magical.

ELEVATED FLORALS ABOVE LONG TABLES – PERFECT ALTERNATIVE TO HANGING FLOWERS

Elevated florals above long tables for weddings by Passion for Flowers shown here at Hampton Manor

What do you think of our elevated florals shown here in the Parlour at Hampton Manor? This elevated design can be used along long tables to create the illusion of hanging flowers without having to fix anything to the ceiling at a venue – much quicker and easier to install on site than a hanging display. The flowers sit on a shelf supported by clear glass tall vases and we think they look just fab…

If you have longer tables the elevated display could continue onto another vase and another to match the length of your table.
If you are getting married at Hampton Manor we love a little extra floral decoration in the Parlour, it will be sure to wow your wedding guests.

HAMPTON MANOR WEDDING FLORIST – TALL BRONZE VASES FOR CENTREPIECES WHITE / BRIGHT PINK FLOWERS

Tall centrepices bright pink blossom in bronze vases at Hampton Manor - flowers by Passion for Flowers @kmorganflowers

At Passion for Flowers we love working on Hampton Manor weddings. Hampton Manor is only about 10 minutes away from our studio so we often find ourselves working on weddings at this beautiful venue. Being a recommended wedding florist at Hampton Manor we were delighted to be involved in a shoot for their new brochure.

If you are including bronze in your wedding colours you will love these new tall bronze vases we have added to our collection of vases. Here we have shown how they look with classic white flowers and a contrast to show how they look with bright pink florals to tie in with the chairs often used at Hampton Manor.

Here we have used white hydrangeas and pale pink lilac with snippets of eucalyptus to create a larger arrangement within the stunning Elizabeth’s Court. To add candle light at a lower level on the table we have included our bronze candle sticks and bronze votives.

TALL BRONZE VASES FOR CENTREPIECES WITH PINK BLOSSOM

We just love using blossom within our floral creations when it is in season, and this pink blossom was just perfect for a brighter centrepiece at Hampton Manor. The pink really ties in with the pink chairs often used in Elizabeth’s Court. Again we have used bronze candle sticks and votives to create interest at the lower level.

These two different centrepieces use the same vase but demonstrate how they can look completely different using different flowers, colours and textures in the arrangements.

To tie in with the pink and bronze centrepiece we decorated the top table with a run of bronze vases with pink blossom and a mix of different bronze votives.

Copper and white geometric wedding styling

For a recent brochure shoot at Hampton Manor we created a modern elegant and sleek bouquet for the bride. This bouquet was created from grasses and calla lilies for a very elegant look.

ELEGANT MODERN BRIDAL BOUQUET

The rest of the shoot was centered around modern geometric wedding styling, we used copper and white colours for an elegant look. Our copper terrariums and bud vases mixed with the white vases look stunning set up on the ladders, just love this shot of them.

DEEP PURPLE WEDDING FLOWERS

Are you thinking of choosing deep purple and burgundy tones for your wedding flowers? Recently we were asked by Wedding Flowers Magazine to take our designs down to London to be shot for their November issue. We used deep purple / maroon / burgundy flowers mixed with a touch of gold to add some glamour.

DEEP PURPLE BRIDAL BOUQUET

For the bridal bouquet we used an natural mix of smoke bush and clematis foliage, deep toned dahlia perfect for an autumn wedding with scabious, scented Kiera rose, sloe berries and touches of trailing amaranthus. The mix of ribbons created a soft romantic finish.

DEEP PURPLE FLOWERS IN CRYSTAL BOWLS ON A GOLD PLATE FOR WEDDING CENTREPIECE

For the centrepiece we created an asymmetrical design in an antique crystal bowl filled with autumnal foliage and blooms, the gold plate added a touch of glamour and height to the design. The combination of autumnal foliage smoke bush, clematis with a mix of sedum and deep toned blooms were the perfect fit with the lush Kiera roses.

PLACE SETTINGS / ESCORT CARD IDEA

For the escort cards we used a mix of mini bottles with guests name and brought the outside in by incorporating snippets of foliage and flowers to set the tone for the day.

BLUSH PINK WEDDING BOUQUET & FLOWER ARCH – SPRING FLOWERS

green foliage whimsical delicate floral garland archway wedding

As you may be aware we have recently changed to a new blog (when we relaunched our website) this means many of our older but still very popular blog posts are in our archives. If you haven’t had time to scroll through our archives don’t worry, from time to time we repost the most popular blog posts on here for you to see.

This post is filled with spring inspiration, with a blush pink wedding bouquet and flower arch. The delicate blush pink florals used in the garland and bouquet would look stunning  and could be incorporated into your wedding if you are getting married in the spring.

BLUSH PINK WEDDING INSPIRATION

blush pink wedding bouquet white spring bridal bouquet posy foliage garland

As part of the love inspired shoot for Rock My Wedding back in January we created a delicate archway garland to frame the bride, we kept the foliage and flowers whimsical wispy and delicate to complement the beautiful lace wedding dress. We used delicate foliage including pieris with spring catkins as a base for the garland and then wired in the softest pale pink tulips, lisianthus and scented narcissus.

BLUSH PINK WEDDING BOUQUET & FLOWER ARCH

The small delicate blush pink bridal bouquet posy was a spring mix of narcissi, ranunculus, palest blush pink lisianthus and snippets of delicate blush pink broom hand tied with textured ribbon with a blush pink satin overlay, finished with a bow. This mix is perfect for a blush pink spring wedding.

STEP BY STEP GUIDE HOW TO MAKE FLORAL WEDDING CENTREPIECES – RUSTIC GLAMOUR

step by step guide how to make wedding centrepieces - rustic glamour (5)

Another of our DIY tutorials was featured on Rock My Wedding this week. If you are thinking of making your own wedding centrepieces or maybe your Christmas dining table centrepieces then have a look at these easy to follow instructions. This step by step guide shows how to make a floral centrepiece using a ring of oasis, we have added a mercury silver hurricane vase to the centre for a rustic glamour look with ribbed silver tea light holders to finish. You can change the flowers and central lantern to create a floral centrepiece of a different style using the same guidelines.

For example you could use a clear glass hurricane vase or ribbed glass lantern in the centre, or for a more rustic look perhaps a bark lantern.

Photos by Adam Crohill, see the full instructions over on Rock My Wedding.

STEP BY STEP GUIDE HOW TO MAKE FLORAL WEDDING CENTREPIECES – RUSTIC GLAMOUR

step by step guide how to make wedding centrepiece - rustic glamour  (2)

To keep this example simple and stylish we have used four ingredients, you can use more if you wish. We used eucalyptus (a lovely grey / green tone for winter), brunia (grey balls to add textures and soft tones), thistles (these add more texture and bring in a subtle blue tone) and finally fluffy white hydrangeas.

The above example is perfect for a rustic winter or rustic glamour wedding. Alternatively you could use different flowers for different seasons.

Spring example: for a pink and white scented spring wedding we suggest white ranunculus, soft pink freesias (adding a lovely scent), blush pink Sweet Avalanches Roses and greenery of your choice, seeded eucalyptus would look stunning. You could lighten with sprigs of gypsophila.

Summer example: for a peach and green toned summer wedding we suggest peach Juliet David Austin roses, cream David Austin roses, Wizard Of Oz Dahlias, tanacetum daisies and vibrant green amni and alchemilla mollis.

Autumn example: for a nude, grey and bronze toned autumn wedding we would suggest dusty miller, large cafe au lait dahlias, Quicksand roses, brunia, olive foliage and scabious seed pods.

HOW TO MAKE A BUTTONHOLE – STEP BY STEP GUIDE

If you are hoping to make your own buttonholes for your wedding you will love our latest collaboration with Rock My Wedding. Lolly and Adam came over and learnt how to make rustic buttonholes. They have detailed the whole process on their blog with step by step instructions and photos. We chose to show how to make rustic buttonholes as they look fab with the stems on show which means you can make them the day before and keep them in water – rather than leaving them until the morning of the wedding.

FEATURED ON BOHO WEDDINGS

It was lovely to see the rustic shoot we worked on last January at The Moat House, Dorsington featured on Boho Weddings.

We used hessian runners and an assortment of rustic vases and vessels filled with seasonal flowers. We created bridal bouquets and button holes, a table plan on apex ladders and more.
